It was love at first swipe, when I found this Dolcissimo Matte Liquid LIp colour (THB 1,400) from Dolce & Gabbana. The liquid lipstick has a truly hydrating formula with a matte finish. Blending onto my lips seamlessly, it works wonders on my dry skin, allowing me to have it on all day without causing any sort of creasing or cracking. My fave shade is ‘Rosebud’, as it gives me a polite pink colour that effortlessly matches with my everyday look. Staying true to the brand’s DNA, its package exudes glam femininity with red rose illustrations, contrasted against a white background. Check it out yourself at Dolce Gabbana’s beauty counter in Siam Paragon. – Chanya Ormtavesub, Staff Writer
To be frank, I’m not quite a big fan of rectangular-shaped sunglasses, but after I spotted Thai celebrity Kim Kimberly pulling off her look with these Miu Miu Societe Black Glitter Rectangle Sunglasses (THB 10,000), I changed my mind almost immediately and moved them to the top of my wishlist. Adorned with metallic sparkles and framed with rimless lenses, these shades will add an exceptionally edgy touch to any outfit. Not only does it spice up our daily ensemble but it also shields our eyes from harmful UV rays with its 100% UVA/UVB protection. Get it before everyone else at Spectacles Boutique. – CO
The colour purple is gorgeous and adding it to your look is the perfect way to embrace autumn as its a hue that falls somewhere in between warm and cold. Marc Jacobs’ See-Quins (THB 950), a glam glitter eyeshadow that came straight off their Fall 2018 Runway Edition is a staple makeup item that has been giving me some seriously sweet butterflies recently. Every time I wear it I feel like I’m channeling my inner-child, something we all should do more regularly. If you’re in the mood to add some fun colours to your face – especially for those with brown eyes and hair – try out this new eyeshadow by Marc Jacobs. Available at all Sephorastores nationwide. — Catherine Napalai Faulder, Managing Editor
After a decade of being known as a beauty label, Oriental Princesshas now made a name for itself as a lifestyle brand by teaming up with Thai famous fashion designer Vatanika Patamasingh na Ayudhyato launch an exclusive bag collection. Inspired by Japanese blossoms, the bag line is filled with flowery motifs and colourful floral hues. One of my favourite items from the range is this Vanda Clutch Bag (THB 1,195). With its long detachable and short built-in straps, the bag can be worn both ways as a clutch and a shoulder bag. Available in two different colours including romantic red and fuchsia pink, this designer clutch is made to define women’s personalities. Sweet or sophisticated? Well, you choose. – CO
Sometimes I feel like all I have to do is thinkabout Aman Hotels & Resortsand I am magically teleported to a secret retreatfar away from my worries. The brand has long been synonymous with a peaceful sanctuary of healing and wellness, and so it comes as no surprise that their new bespoke skincare range does not disappoint. I love this Nourishing Sacred Heart Balm (approx. THB 3000), made with a blend of murumuru seeds and shea butter, as well as tuberose, frangipani, and vanilla oils. Fragrant and stress-relieving, it brings a natural radiance to the skin as well as a wave of calm to the senses. Hydrating. Natural. Holistic. Ah. I feel relaxed just typing about it. — Lisa Gries, Staff Writer
